With all that going on, Ryan Vogelsong threw a masterful two-hitter against the Mets. Only 102 pitches as Zo at Raising (Matt) Cain notes in his post -- 

That is all the pitches that it took Ryan Vogelsong to get his first 9 inning complete game of his career.  In 2011, he threw a 6 inning, rain-shortened complete game against the Cubs.

This is about as inspirational a win as the Giants could have hoped for, and if they can be sparked by a gritty performance, this has to qualify.  The game went by quickly - 2:06 because both the Giants and the Mets often closed out their bats in only a few pitches.  However, the Giants threw 5 runs up and the Mets managed 1 on Lucas Duda's solo home run.  Ryan Vogelsong gave up 2 - count 'em - 2 hits in 9 innings, the first in the 6th, and the second, Duda's home run, in the 8th.  Ryan only gave up 1 BB.  Brandon Crawford and Hunter Pence both tripled, in the same inning!  Matt Duffy at second, a call up from AA Richmond, got a hit and an rbi in his first ML game.  Lucas Duda, whose real name is Octavia Devon Duda (you can see why he goes by Lucas) is a Metropolitan favorite and  the leading home run hitter on the Mets.  Should he serve his entire career with the Mets, they might honor him with a special ceremony, O. D, Duda Day.
